Oh, I see thanks.  I’m on the young side, along with Tony Manco and Roy
Schestowitz.  I’m not sure about the other members’ ages.

Doctor Smith can use a good friend and may be in COLA for attention.  Or
maybe I’m wrong- it’s hard to figure out people’s intentions online.

Come on, Doctor Smith.  You know that’s not true at all.

Indeed.  :(

Yes, the Linux community is diverse, like I mentioned before.  Each distro,
desktop environment, app, etc. has its own group of fans and maintainers. 
So which group are you talking about, Doctor Smith??

Doctor Smith shouldn't be making fun of people who don't conform to his set
of beliefs.  Homosexuals aren't hurting anyone.  They are simply guilty of
loving someone- and that's not a crime at all.

Doctor Smith should realize that Linux is simply a good alternative, and it
doesn’t make sense to hate it so much.  Learn to love it!
